I know GM did not figure this out overnite so when was ECU update put on new redlines and how do you know if your car has it?Maybe the mods could get someone from saturn to answer our questions kinda like a fact sheet.Oh yeah would this be a recall item?

If you have an '04 or an early '05 model, your car most likely does not have the upgrade...

It's not a reacall. I got my '05 at the end of January and they did the update on it. I'm not really sure that I needed it, I don't think they were either, but it made the car feel different. So I'm assuming that my car was affected, since they seem to have just got the update distributed recently I would assume that most cars still would need it. It dosen't seem like dealers are going out and running the updates on all the Redlines in the lot yet.

They are only doing it for cars with the "bucking syndrome" and cold start troubles.

At least, that's what my dealer told me. They said they wouldn't just do it for me if I brought the car in. There has to be a related problem yadda yadda yadda.


Luckily, my bud on here (Austin) has a brother who works as a tech at another nearby Satty dealer and said he could get them to do it for me, no questions asked.

That reminds me...I need to give him a call. All this ranting and raving about the upgrade makes me anxious to get it done.

yeah just like sp00ner said is not a recall even though I think if Saturn knows this makes the RL run a lot better they should issue some kind or recall or something of the like, it makes that much difference. after getting it done on my 04 RL yesterday you can definetely tell the diference right away. I don't know if this increases hp at all but like I said on some other ECU posting who cares your car will feel faster and in my case I think it is faster with power thoughout the rev range on all gears with no 2nd gear lag like I had before.

My SES light came on one time while I was driving. Car seemed to run fine with no problems. After I turned the car off and let it sit for awhile, turned it back on and it wasn't on any more. I took it to the dealer to see what code it threw and they said it didn't store one at all.(weird) It hasn't been back on since.
